Once Upon a Time in St Lucia…
Stonefield Estate Resort, one of the loveliest locales on the island of St Lucia, bears the distinction of having captured the imagination of the island’s earliest known inhabitants, the Arawaks. These Amerindian people, as early as 350 A.D. were so impressed by the verdant tropical landscape and its auspicious positioning near the imposing Petit Piton that they recorded their impressions on a stone tablet which can still be seen at Stonefield Estate today.
Stonefield Estate Resort’s appeal has only increased over time. In fact this coveted patch of earth has continued to inspire many, from those who work the land, to those who seek the muse or those who rest a while to absorb its moving serenity.
Stonefield’s more recent history includes its incarnation as a prosperous agricultural estate producing the much desired cocoa and lime oil that were driving forces of colonial plantation economies. In 1972 the Brown family acquired the land and Canadian engineer Wayne Brown and his St Lucian wife Anista began to envision a retreat that would eventually become a pied-à-terre for visitors from the world over.
Elegantly rustic accommodations ensconced in a lush tropical hillside afford visitors a chance to relax, luxuriate and rejuvenate. Stonefield Estate Resort continues a 1600-year old reputation as one of the most desirable destinations for the discerning Caribbean traveler.
